Jets vs. Bills – Keys to Week 11

The Bills’ Strategy:Step 1: Use the run to set up the pass – The Jets know they have the best rushing defense in the league, but the Bills have one of the best RB tandems in the league with CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson. All it takes is one or two big plays off the tackles to force the Jets struggling secondary to move up into run support. From there, EJ Manuel should be able to...

A Fine Line

I am currently reading a book by Sal Paolantonio entitled How Football Explains America. It’s a nice combination of thoughtful analysis on football as a reflection of society mixed in with forced embellishments on the similarities between our nation’s forefathers and the sport’s earliest pioneers. One chapter details the coaching tree in Army’s football program, a legacy...

Extra Point: Turnovers help Bills close out defending Super Bowl Champs

  Feel free to insert your own cliché on ugly wins when thinking back on the Bills’ win over the Ravens yesterday. The Bills got the thing to the garage but with the effectiveness of a drunk guy wearing an eye patch.

The ‘Best Five’ And What That Means For The Roster

One phrase that Bills’ offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has repeated is that the ‘best five’ skill position players are going to see the most time on the field. The five that he is referring to are the five players who are on the field for the offense that don’t include the quarterback or five offensive linemen. At first glance, this seems to be a fairly innocuous...

Larry King’s Buffalo Bills News and Views

Oddly enough I happen to be friends with former CNN news correspondent Larry King, and he was kind enough to send me some thoughts about the Buffalo Bills, in the “News and Views”  style of his USA Today column. Here they are: Are NFL Draft picks getting younger these days, or am I getting older? Five techniques are good, but for my money nothing beats a good three technique...

A pick 6 of football flippin', floppin', flyin'

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer There's been a whole lot of flipping, flopping and flying in football recently, from the Carolinas to the frozen tundra and, appropriately, just off Broadway.

Bills TE Lee Smith demonstrates why Lambeau Leaping should be left to the pros in Green Bay

It’s like one of those trust building exercises gone horribly wrong. Late in the third quarter of their 15-12 loss to the Rams—at home no less—the Bills scored a 2-yard go-ahead touchdown on a Ryan Fitzpatrick TD pass to rarely used tight end Lee Smith.  In his excitement Smith tried replicating the Lambeau Leap into the Buffalo faithful, only the Bills fans aren’t quite...

Bills Tight End Lee Smith Gets Swallowed Up by Stands After Fans Forget to Catch Him (Animation)

There’s a reason it’s called the Lambeau Leap and not the Ralph Wilson Stadium Leap.

After executing a perfect play-action bootleg pass on the two yard line, Lee Smith went to celebrate by doing his version of the Lambeau Leap with the Bills fans near the end zone.  The only issue is that he failed miserably.When he went up for the jump he landed on top, but no one caught him and fell on his back on the other side of the wall.  Perhaps Packers fans should tell...

Buffalo Bills Final Roster Analysis

Quarterbacks At quarterback, starter Ryan Fitzpatrick was obviously a lock, as was backup Tarvaris Jackson, who they just traded for. Jackson’s 2012 salary became guaranteed when they asked him to take a paycut, so they weren’t cutting him less than a week after trading for him. Brad Smith, their wildcat quarterback, who also plays wide receiver and special teams, was safe as...
